About me

What is Sports Therapy?

Sports Therapy, contrary to popular misconceptions, is not simply about Sports Massage. It is an aspect of healthcare concerned with the prevention of injury and the rehabilitation of the patient back to optimum levels of functional, occupational and sports specific fitness, regardless of age and ability.

It utilizes the principles of sport and exercise sciences incorporating physiological and pathological processes to prepare the participant for training, competition and where applicable, work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated with a Masters Degree in Sports Therapy from The University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) in 2009. Since that time I have gained experience working with Swansea Harriers Athletics Club, providing injury management and sports massage support on match-days and at weekly training sessions, in addition to seeing private clients at Llanelli Leisure Centre. I also work as a Fitness Instructor in the Carmarthenshire Actif Health and Fitness Gym, at Llanelli Leisure Centre.

In my free time, I enjoy running and surfing regularly. I am also a keen mountain and hill walker, with Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Elbrus – two of the world’s 7 continental summits – my most notable achievements. I like to think that my passion for sport, and all things active, give me some insight and empathy for what an injured client might be going through.
